Congratulations Clayton Valley Charter High School Class of 2016!

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."                   Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Address 2005

You are a special group of graduates since your high school journey began in 2012, our inaugural year as Clayton Valley Charter High School.  We are proud of your stellar accomplishments these past four years of your high school career. You have been persistent and are now prepared to conquer the world!  

Thank you to our parents for your partnership in education and, “Congratulations on a job well-done!”

The CVCHS staff alongside your parents, family and friends want to recognize the Class of 2016 for your outstanding scholastic pursuits. 

This year, ninety-three percent of our graduating class will be moving on to college in the Fall.  A total of forty percent of our graduating seniors will be attending a four-year university. Twenty-seven percent of our graduates were accepted into various University of California colleges and thirty-eight percent will be attending Cal State Universities. Most notable, a number of our graduates were accepted to UC Davis. Additional top choices for our students included UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UCLA and UC Irvine. Some of the top California State Universities our graduates have been accepted to include Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, San Diego State University, San Francisco State, CSU Chico, San Jose State and Sonoma State University.  In addition to four-year universities, fifty percent of our graduates will be attending Community Colleges, two percent will be studying at Trade/Tech Colleges, one and one half percent will be serving in the Military, and seven percent will be pursuing work or taking a gap year before entering college.  A further example of our CVCHS students’ abilities in academic, athletic and merit-based awards include members of our graduating class receiving monetary scholarships amounting to $1.2 million dollars!

The rigor of courses that students take at CVCHS prepares them for top universities and has contributed to thirty-five percent of our graduating students to be accepted to prestigious Out of State and Private Universities. Some notable accomplishments include students being accepted to the following colleges:

Our highest award recognition a student at CVCHS can achieve is the Altairs Awards for Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Grand Altair.  The four awards were established by the first graduating class from Clayton Valley in 1960.  The Altair is the name of the brightest star in the Constellation Aguila, the Eagle.  The selection of Altair candidates is made by members of the Senior Class and a final vote is made by a special committee comprised of student leaders and teaching staff.

I’m very proud to honor these individual students who exemplify the very best at CVCHS:

Grand Altair - Maris Degener was awarded the most prestigious award given to a CVCHS student.  Only those students with a 4.0 GPA or higher may be considered because that person represents all three areas:  Scholarship, Leadership, and Service.  Maris is the “Voice of 2016” where she held top honors in all categories and will be addressing her fellow students at this year’s graduation ceremony.   She also served as one of our CVCHS student correspondents reporting on school affairs for the Clayton Pioneer.

Scholarship Altair - Zachary Fine was honored for his amazing academic performance and the difficulty of those courses taken by the student.   He excelled in all advance placement courses including college-level mathematics.

Service Altair - Ben Schoffstall was recognized for his actions of selfless giving to CVCHS and the community. Ben was presented with this award for his active participation as a member of the Public Service Academy and involvement in multiple volunteer community programs.

Leadership Altair - Hosna Opeyani was honored for her efforts to motivate and encourage others throughout her four years at CVCHS.  As student body president, she demonstrated unique leadership traits to inspire fellow students and display our Ugly Eagle spirit at all school activities.  She also served as president for her Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior Classes.

Congratulations Clayton Valley Charter High School Class of 2016!



Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

This is just the beginning of the rest of your life.

I wish you well on your journey to discover all that life has to offer you!


In Your Service,

David Linzey

Executive Director

School funding comes directly from student's daily attendance.  When they attend school, even for a portion of the day, we receive full funding for that day.  When your student does not attend at all, we receive no funding at all.  Since 2007, California funding for public education (which includes charter schools) has been reduced significantly causing a tremendous strain on schools to offer educational programs.  We need each student here everyday, even if it is only for a part of the day (after doctor's and dentist appointments, etc.).  CVCHS can actually increase our state funding if every parent does their best to get their students to school everyday.  Thanks!
